45 minutes West of Lagos is Sagres. Known as the End of the World, before they discovered the Americas, there’s even a bratwurst van boasting the last bratwurst before America – Oh my goodness, the things we do for the tourists!!
First stop was Cape St Vincent, then working back east we stopped at Forte Beliche and lastly Sagres Fortress – all within a 5 minute drive of each other. I was mesmerised by the sounds and sight of the ocean waves. By necessity the land here is solid rock as opposed to the soft, red sand stone of Ponta de Piedade, imoveable yet shaped over centuries of beating by the ocean.
